>> the impossible situation in syria getting worse by the hour after the airstrike on targets. regime of bashar assad in syria is warning of a surprise response to what it called israeli aggression. as you recall, the israeli warplanes on wednesday bombed targets just outside the capital city of damascus, syria. a u.s. official says it was a strike on a convoy that was headed for lib non, which they say could have been an attempted transfer weapons to hezbollah. group that the united states government consider aster rorrist organization. theoretically, missileles would give hezbollah ability to shoot down israeli jets and helicopters and drones. syria on the other hand claims the israelis hit some kind of military research lab. so far the israelis haven't said a thing as is par for the course. i'm ran is in the mix here. syria and iran are close allies. last week, they said any
4:16pm
attack on syria is an attack on them. with that the fox correspondent john hunt is here. if someone moving the missiles why now? >> given israel threat to act if the weapons were moved in past weeks and months it's unlikely the decision was taken lightly. according to experts like andrew taylor in the washington institute it may be a sign that the syrian regime and the allies are becoming increasingly concerned that the rebels might be able to overrun those facilities and get the hands on those weapons. listen. >> it could very well be they did not want weapons to fall in hands of the rebels. something created necessity for them to move them. i don't think it was because they felt like it. i think the rebel encroachment there or elsewhere forced hezbollah, regime in iran, to keep the powder dry a literally move weapons where they keep them safest. >> the threat of retaliation, nobody thinks that the syrian
4:17pm
military is about to strike at israel. knows it would be suicide mission. there is a great fear, though, that syria and iran might use the hezbollah proxies to carry out terrorist attack against the israeli interest. >> shepard: iran is a major player in this. >> interesting comments. we just heard from secretary of state hillary clinton on iran. she has just said that window for negotiations with iran over the nuclear program cannot stay open, "for too much longer." we know high-level israeli officials are visiting and talking with the pentagon counterpart. now hillary clinton is saying in the clearest way yet the time is running out. in other words, action might be coming. if that context israeli strikes in syria make sense. it would degrade retaliatory ability of iran and allies. all of this could, i emphasize could, mean the u.s. is now moving toward the time frame benjamin netanyahu israeli prime minister laid out in the speech you will remember at
